When you are looking to move abroad there are so many things to take into consideration and having the appropriate health insurance that will cover you for medical treatment when you are away from your country of origin is of paramount importance.
In the UK we are lucky to have the NHS to fall back on however, this is not the case when you look at living in different countries around the world. Whether you are looking to reside in a foreign country for 6 months, 1 year or for far longer you need to have your international health insurance in place so you know you have cover should the worst happen.
International Private Medical Insurance is not travel insurance and therefore should be looked at in a completely different way.
*AXA PPP International are one of the largest providers of expat health insurance and their policies are designed to cover you for all new medical conditions that occur after you have joined them wherever you are in the world.
They offer four plans for expat health insurance which are:
- Prestige Plus
You can control the premium that you pay by choosing to pay an excess that is affordable to you and the cover can be taken in either of the two following areas:
Worldwide Cover: With this option you can access treatment anywhere in the world including access to all the US-based hospitals, pharmacies and clinics in our network for any eligible treatment you may need.
Worldwide excluding USA cover: Medical treatment in the USA is some of the most expensive in the world, so if you don’t think you’ll need to receive treatment in the United States, our worldwide excluding USA area of cover may be best for your budget. You’ll still be able to use your benefits to access treatment in hospitals across the rest of the world and if you do find yourself requiring emergency treatment while you’re in the USA, all our plans provide some cover for emergency in-patient and day-patient treatment.
